Suicide Car Bomb Blast Near Kabul Airport, One Dead, 30 Injured

Kabul; Dec.29: A suicide bomber killed at least one person and injured 30 in an attack on a road near a school close to Kabul airport, officials in the Afghan capital said on Monday, barely two weeks after a major Taliban assault in the city.

A police officer at the scene said the suicide bomber walked up to a white pickup truck and detonated explosives he was wearing. A minibus was also destroyed by the explosion, which shattered the windows of nearby shops.

"Enemies of humanity detonated a suicide car bomb in front of a madrassa where children were learning the Koran and Islamic studies. It shows that they are enemies of mosques, God and the Koran," Kabul Police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi said.
